The FA Cup fifth-round draw has been completed as teams have learned their fates. 

Bristol City will be looking to create a big upset when they host Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at Ashton Gate. 

The Robins easily prevailed over West Bromwich Albion 3-0, with young forward Sam Bell earning a brace. 

Meanwhile, Sheffield United will lock horns with Tottenham Hotspur who brushed aside Preston North End in the previous round

The four times FA Cup champions thrashed non-League Wrexham 3-1 at Bramall Lane, with three of their players earning their names on the scoresheet.  

Blackburn Rovers prevailed over Birmingham City 1-0 in the replay match, with Auston Trusty diverting Sammie Szmodics’ cross into his own net in extra-time. 

The Riversiders will now meet Leicester City, who outclassed Walsall, at the King Power Stadium at the end of this month. 

Elsewhere, Stoke City will come up against Brighton & Hove Albion following their 3-1 home win over Stevenage in the fourth-round. 

Fleetwood Town will travel to Burnley, hoping to continue their impressive FA Cup run. 

Meanwhile, League Two outfit Grimsby Town are still alive in the competition. They shocked Luton Town with a 3-0 win in the fourth-round replay and will now face Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium next month. 

Premier League giants Manchester United are set to meet West Ham United, while Leeds United will square off against Fulham.
